AUD/USD rebound from 0.6378 lows on Thursday has jumped beyond 0.6500 to reach session highs at 0.6545, where the pair faces an important resistance hurdle. The 100-day SMA, which capped the pair’s recovery on April 30 and the former trendline support, both converging at 0.6555/65 might put pressure on AUD bulls.
Above here, the pair might gain bullish momentum, aiming towards march 9 high at 0.6680 and early February highs at 0.6765.
On the downside, the pair has found support at 0.6380 (May 4 and 7 lows). Below here bears might increase negative pressure driving the pair towards April 21 low at 0.6250 and April 9 low at 0.6190.
